Africa World Airlines and Vida e Caffe partner in unique onboard catering offering

Africa World Airlines, the proud winner of "Best Passenger Experience" at Aviatour Awards 2019, is pleased to announce a partnership with leading coffee shop brand, Vida e Caffe, to provide passengers traveling on domestic routes with new catering options.

Effective from Monday, 9th December 2019, passengers on domestic flights within Ghana will have the ability to pre-purchase snacks and drinks prepared by Vida e Caffe via the www.flyAfricaWorld.com website. The passengers can then collect their purchases at the Vida e Caffe store at Accra Terminal 2 departures before their flights.

"Due to the short duration of our domestic flights, we have struggled to provide an appropriate level of on-board service to our passengers", said Richard Kyereh, Head of Commercial for Africa World Airlines. "This new partnership with Vida e Caffe will not only allow travelers the flexibility of choosing and consuming their refreshments at the departure airport, but also reinforces AWA's commitment towards environmental sustainability by reducing the weight of catering carried on board our aircraft."

"Vida e Caffe is pleased to partner with AWA on this ground breaking partnership", said Samir Sawma, Managing Director of Vida e Caffe. "We are excited to offer AWA passengers the opportunity to savour the 'life and coffee' experience during their journey through Accra's Terminal 2."

This service will initially be pioneered for domestic flights departing from Kotoka International Airport's Terminal 2, but is planned to be rolled out in other markets in due course. The menu is available to pre-order up to 24 hours prior to departure, and will feature a special selection of sandwiches, as well as a choice of selected hot drinks and juices from the Vida e Caffe menu.
